The Moorings adds new Beneteau models in Caribbean


The Moorings is preparing to debut a group of new monohull models in the Caribbean for the winter of 2016.

Coming to St. Martin, St. Lucia, Grenada and the British Virgin Islands, the Beneteau-built Moorings 48.4, designed by Berret Rocuupeau, features four en-suite cabins and room for as many as 10 guests.

Inside, large portholes illuminate the 48.4's air-conditioned interior. Light taupe cushioning is alongside oak finishing.

Outside, the 48.4 features a convertible transom that drops down to become a swim platform. It contains a Raymarine navigation system, a bow thruster and a 75-hp Yanmar diesel engine.

Coming to St. Lucia and Grenada in December, The Moorings 42.1 is also from the builders at Beneteau. With a focus on layout, the companionway descends into a saloon accented with light oak paneling and oversize portholes.

The master cabin includes a double bed with an en-suite bathroom shower; two additional cabins share another full bathroom, allowing room for as many as six guests.

"I'm delighted that our extensive monohull range will be expanded further with the introduction of these two beautiful new Beneteau models," said The Moorings general manager Josie Tucci in a statement. "I know they will delight guests with their modern look, comfort aboard and great sailing performance. Plus with more of our popular 38-foot and 45-foot models arriving in the Caribbean this winter, get ready for some superb warm-water sailing.”
